About Croydon

Croydon is an enterprising, lively and multicultural town with the added benefit of being only a short journey away from all the attractions of one of the world’s leading capital cities - London. The College’s central location in the town means that it can easily be reached by public transport.

Croydon is a 'buzzing and bustling' town for the 21st Century. This can be seen in innovative projects like the futuristic £200 million 'Tramlink' project which provides a 28km environmentally friendly tram service between Croydon and surrounding areas.

Croydon is Britain's 6th largest commercial centre and has been a focus for shopping in the South East since the 13th Century, when Surrey Street Market was established. Croydon today offers a contemporary centre for shopping with a comprehensive range of retail outlets rivalling Central London.

Although Croydon has developed into a strong business centre, the area offers more than 1,000 hectares of green park space with easy access to the beauty of the North Downs and Surrey countryside.

Croydon Vision 2020 is a regeneration programme by the London Borough of Croydon. The programme aims to influence urban planning to improve the built, economic and social environment of the Croydon community.

One of five Masterplans in development as part of this regeneration programme is the College Green Masterplan. The plan incorporates Croydon College, Fairfield Halls and the Croydon Magistrates Court.
